Harrah's, Meals On Wheels Urge Corporate Response to Help Solve Problem Hunger is a serious threat facing million of seniors in the United States, according to a groundbreaking national research study underwritten by the Harrah's Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. The study, released today by Harrah's and the Meals on Wheels Association Of America (MOWAA) Foundation, concludes that more than 5 million Americans - 11.4 percent of all seniors - face the threat of hunger. Seniors most likely to be at-risk are those with limited incomes, African Americans, Hispanics, the unmarried, renters, persons under age 70 and persons living in the South. "I challenge my colleagues in corporate America to join Harrah's by taking a leadership role in the Corporate Response to Senior Hunger program developed by Meals on Wheels," said Jan Jones, Harrah's senior vice president of communications and government affairs, in testimony prepared for the U.S. Senate's Special Committee on Aging.
